Project Cacheonix today announced a cache provider for PrimeFaces. Cache provider for PrimeFaces allows developers to improve performance of their web applications by serving the repeatedly generated content from a fast in-memory cache. PrimeFaces cache provider is available as a part of Cacheonix 2.3 release.

Developed by a global community, Cacheonix is an Open Source Java cache that helps developers build scalable applications by eliminating scalability bottlenecks.

Notable enhancements to Cacheonix 2.3 include:

- Cache provider for PrimeFaces.
- Code quality improvements.

Caching a segment of your PrimeFaces code is as easy as wrapping the PrimeFaces code in the <cache> tag:

    <p:cache region="primefaces" key="toolbar">
            <p:toolbarGroup align="left">
                <p:commandButton type="button" value="Save"/>
                <p:commandButton type="button" value="Cancel"/>

A complete list of features of the cache provider for PrimeFaces is available on Cacheonix wiki:
